Teenaged tennis star Ashleigh Barty has failed to replicate her heroics of last year in the Australian Open wildcard play-off at Melbourne Park.

The 16-year-old Queenslander, who won last year's play-off, was upset by Serbian-born West Australian Bojana Bobusic in their quarter-final on Thursday.

Bobusic, who as world No.334 is ranked 158 places lower than Barty, withstood a strong start by the No.2 seed and fought back in hot conditions for a 3-6 6-3 6-4 win.

Barty is almost certain to be granted a discretionary wildcard despite the defeat.

Bobusic's victory set up a meeting with Victoria's Arina Rodionova - the sister of fellow professional Anastasia Rodionova - in Saturday's semi-finals.

Rodionova beat WA's Jessica Moore 7-5 6-3 on Thursday.

NSW's third seed Monique Adamczak, the highest-ranked player left in the event after Barty's exit, downed Victoria's Viktorija Rajicic 6-2 6-4.

Adamczak's semi-final opponent is yet to be decided, after rain stopped play between Priscilla Hon (Qld) and Tammi Patterson (Vic), with Hon 4-3 up in the first set.

They will resume on Friday.

Patterson upset top seed Olivia Rogowska in the opening round.

The men's semi-finals are on Friday, with Queensland's John-Patrick Smith to meet NSW's Matt Reid and Queenslander Benjamin Mitchell to face NSW's Matthew Barton.
